John Gayle's goal at Wembley in the tinpot windscreen wipers shield trophy was the greatest goal ever scored at Wembley apparently. Although to be fair that year they managed to do the double and actually win a trophy of sorts and not get relegated in the same season.

Didn't that run start with a last-minute equaliser against someone like Rochdale?

Brentford at home in a later round they equalised in injury time and won on pens.

After theyd previously beaten the mighty Rochdale and MK Dons.

I  don't normally laugh at other clubs players picking up bad injuries ,but in the case of the Small Heath thug Kieftenbeld i will make a exception .It's karma for a player who tries to cripple Jack every time we play them

To be fair to them I think they are referring to John’s last minute goal in the play offs against Millwall - I think anyway.

Lots of Blues on that website with addresses from other places like Wales, Redditch, London..... but they dont mention that amongst themselves. But none of us Villa fans come from Birmingham.....

Kieftenbeld out for nine months. If ever a player deserves a injury, its one that likes to rough other players up.

He's about as intimidating as Julian Clary as well, just gives it the hardman in absence of actual ability.

At the risk of hand wringing, what the dickens is happening with an FA response to the assault at St Andrews? Its been weeks now.  Are they waiting fo see if a points deduction is meaningful to relegation or what?

I don't think they will have the balls to give them a points deduction when they have already had one this season. I reckon it will be a fine. They will probably have to pop into court to pay it off at twenty quid a week.

There’s yet another thread about us and our ‘spawniness’ over there at the minute.  It’s been going now for quite a while.  One of them is even using the logic of us being unlucky about Vidic not being sent off in the final as a result of us using up all our luck in the semi against Blackburn. 

They’re talking about us being lucky in games that took place nine years ago.  When it comes to knowing the history of our club they really do collectively graduate with firsts.

Especially when we were cheated blind in the first leg at Blackburn, anyway. Should have had two penalties.

I don't think you can really moan about other teams being lucky when you have successive last-day survivals, one achieved because your relegation rivals had a three-nil lead against ten men wiped out by a game being abandoned, and another because you played a side who rested their entire first team in your last home game.

And, as LeeB has said, the only major one-off trophy win in their entire poxy history was because the Arse goalkeeper basically chucked it into the net in the 89th minute.

That site they have is the worst fan site I've ever seen. Kippax, you are right, they have a ridiculous knowledge when it comes to us. They're mentioning things I can barely remember, and usually my knowledge of Villa is crystal clear.

Fuck every last one of them on there with their a million and one pathetic acronyms and childish nicknames. DVB, SOTV, the vile, fannies. Yawn.

In a similar vein, Wolves' last major trophy was won thanks to a Forest defender setting up Andy Gray for an open goal tap in by chesting it past his own keeper.
